About This Item

-Rizzoli International (27 Feb. 2006)-. Exhibition catalogue for Karin Davie: Dangerous Curves. First edition. 310x235mm 160 pages. Illustrated in colour throughout, with some black and white. Pictorial boards. Fine in dustjacket. New - still in publishers shrink-wrap. Karin Davie is one of a group of young, accomplished painters widely credited for reinvigorating abstract painting. A critical favourite, her sensuous canvases have enthralled collectors and the art-going public. According to Ken Johnson of the "New York Times", "The best bet for immediate aesthetic gratification right now is Karin Davie...painting loopy abstractions in which wide striated ribbons fill the canvases in undulating waves." Since the completion of her MFA 16 years ago, Karin Davie has built an impressive career. When other artists at her stage are struggling to create an identifiable and cohesive body of work, Davie has developed and matured a signature style that makes her work unmistakable. Her large canvases, bold use of colour, and characteristic swooping ribbon abstractions pushing the edges of the picture plane are exuberant evocations of movement. With the help of her dealer, art-world power broker Mary Boone, Davie's work has been in countless exhibitions throughout the world and selected works have been acquired by major private and public collections. The book contains approximately 80 of Karin Davie's most recent paintings and a selection of sculptural drawings. Davie works at the intersection between representation and abstraction, creating sensuous, psychological, and completely exhilarating canvases. While her work seems spontaneous, the fluidity of her lines betray an intense degree of concentration and a striking command of the medium. Her sculptural drawings - on zippered paper with mirrored Mylar - conjure up the squashed and distorted images of her paintings.
